The text ot the newsreel.
Yugoslavia's Marshall Tito arrives in Moscow's vast Kiev station to receive a welcome worthy of a conqueror. An organized reception that is a far cry from the denunciation hurl at Tito by the official red press only a few years ago. The man who Stalin sough to destroy is greeted like a long lost friend by Khrushchev and Bulganin in the culmination of their campaign to win Yugoslavia back. A well rehearsed city gives its accolade. The last step in a wooing that included abject apology, repudiation of Stalin and the firing of foreign minister Molotov. The reconciliation is accepted by Tito, but with reservations. He hopes to keep his current ties with the west and perform the difficult feat of walking both sides of the street, east and west.
